Celestron PowerSeeker 50 overview

  • 1Description

The PowerSeeker 50 50mm f/12 AZ Refractor Telescope from Celestron is a starter scope designed to introduce viewers to astronomy by giving them a complete setup for viewing the moon, planets, and meteor showers. Three eyepieces provide 30x, 50x, and 150x magnifications with a 3x Barlow lens that triples the magnification of each eyepiece for a wider range of observing possibilities. An adjustable height aluminum tripod provides a stable platform for sky-watching, and the included 90° star diagonal makes looking through the scope more comfortable, especially when aiming the telescope toward the zenith.

    Celestron PowerSeeker 50 reviews

    PowerSeeker 50 50mm f/12 AZ Refractor Telescope is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value for the money This was purchased as a gift for my nephew. He is a beginner in astronomy and I wanted to get him a telescope that was easy to use and would last him a few years. It was very easy to assemble and the instructions were straight forward. We enjoyed the software included in the package and we were gazing at stars the first night we received it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Seller I am not able to review the telescope yet because it is a gift, but the service from this seller is amazing. Shipped quickly, and packaged perfectly.
